Female university startup founder

It’s always exciting for scientists to see their ideas come to fruition in the lab. For NC State computer science researcher Helen Gu, that idea was a new approach to identifying and preventing cloud-computing problems. And her idea has now expanded beyond the lab, as the company she launched – InsightFinder Inc. – has now grown into an enterprise with a dozen employees, a growing client list, and a bright future.

“We are now working with 15 companies around the world that rely on cloud-computing technologies, in sectors from healthcare to finance to telecommunications,” Gu says. “Essentially, we are helping clients – from Fortune 500 companies to small startups – identify problems before they affect performance and service availability. And we not only identify the problems, but diagnose what is causing them, so that they can be addressed.”
